Atoms: Are You Mostly Invisible?

Whether we observe the universe from a microscope or telescope, every scale of our existence fractals in self-similarity. Atomic structures of all shapes and sizes contain the same invisible, empty, energetic space. In fact, atoms are said to be 99% hollow and only ~1% physical. So, what does this really say about us (humans)?

Ever since J.J. Thompson and others discovered the primary building blocks of matter, new subatomic particles are continually found in places within spaces through the most powerful microscopes.  Yet, on the flip side celestial bodies have been revealing themselves in space through supersized telescopes where we see the same chemical compositions at grander scales.

We’re all made of atoms, whether we give them new names based on recent subatomic discoveries, or refer to “star” chemicals, like Hydrogen, all nouns have the same ingredients with different electron configurations.  Nobel Prize winner, Richard Feynman was one of many to announce the “atomic hypothesis” that defines us as being 99% hollow.  However, what does it mean to be mostly empty?  We know our bones are hollow, and our bodies are inflated with gravitational energy spaces that flow air and water nonstop.  Yet, what does this really say about us?  

Only 1% of our composition is ‘physically’ compounded with atoms that we call molecules, cells, and other organisms that reside inside of humans.  The rest of our body, which includes thoughts and feelings are completely invisible.  Have you ever thought this?  

As an example, if you’ve ever used an online map software, like Google Earth, you’ll notice when zooming out from street level > cityscape > state or county > country > to continent, you finally get to the dark black space of which Earth is contained.  Consider this for a moment.  All of us, including flora and fauna reside in places “within” innumerable spaces; and the more we zoom in or out, the space itself becomes more visible.  Is it the same 99% emptiness in which atoms are defined?  

We are all atomic structures living as particles of the planet, within a celestial ‘body’ sphere of outer space.  Are we the aliens the solar system?  On another scale, it almost seems as if humans are cells or organisms of the Earth.  As a case in point, consider the cells in your own biology.  When we are thirsty or hungry the cells, as a living community within, become nourished via our consumption.  It seems as if “you” desire food or water, but there’s a whole city or country of organisms living inside every sector of our organs pumping, flooding, digesting, wasting, consuming, and working like slaves on our behalf.  In fact, they live in places “within” spaces, just like the zoom levels referenced above.

Every scale of our existence contains the same invisible, empty, energetic space of atoms that universally gravitate together somehow.  Whether we are the tiniest subatomic particle or grandest stellar star, planet, or galaxy, if we are, mostly invisible space, what does this really say about us?
